LP Goes With Biele For Manitoba Shake Line
Louisiana Pacific and Biele Group have successfully implemented their first project—a shake profile production line in Swan Valley, Manitoba, Canada. This investment is part of the company’s expansion plans for siding products within their LP SmartSide trim and siding brand.
The project consists of a fully automatic shake profile production line that is fed with 8×4 ft. orientated-strand board panels for several post-processing processes to get different sized shakes. The Biele line feeds the mother board and cuts into multiple pieces that will be profiled, painted and packaged according to different recipes.
According to LP’s Engineering Project Manager Danaillie Woodfine, “Prior to adding the shake line in Swan Valley, LP had a shake line in Roaring River, North Carolina. Customer demand for the shake product was outpacing the capacity of the Roaring River line. The new line includes more automation and an increased line speed that is capable of twice the production of the Roaring River line. This increase capacity will allow LP to meet future customer demand.”
